10 Fun Things To Do Week of June 7th: Fishing, Magick, Mocktails and MORE!
OnIndianapolis.com proudly presents our newest feature, FUN10, a list of the top 10 things to do in Indianapolis this week, and every week! Every Sunday, we’ll drop a new FUN10, to give you a head start on your week and a heads up on what’s going on over the coming seven days. Check out FUN10 every Sunday for the details on ten awesome events happening around town. It’s a cool read, and a great way to get started planning your entertainment for the week.
Due to the cancellation of so many regularly scheduled events in Indianapolis – with more coming in every hour – we’re focusing this week’s edition of Fun10Indianapolis on fun entertainment you can enjoy in the safety of your own home or while practicing safe ‘social distancing’ as the state begins the process of opening back up.
So what’s on the FUN10 for this week? Read on …

Join the Indianapolis Chamber Orchestra on June 1 for “Mocktails and Masterpieces,” featuring theremin player Darryl Kubian.
Darryl is an accomplished musician whose compositions have been commissioned and performed by orchestras throughout North America. Kubian’s music embraces warm tonality and sweeping textures, and evokes an “open-hearted lyricism.” (New Jersey Star Ledger) As a thereminist, he has performed as featured soloist with the National Symphony Orchestra, Chicago Symphony Orchestra, the Philharmonia Orchestra of New York, and the Indianapolis Chamber Orchestra. As a violinist, he is a member of the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra and has performed in chamber collaborations in both the jazz and classical world.
Darryl will join Maestro Matthew Kraemer in a discussion about the unusual origin and sound of the theremin and we’ll hear the October performance of The Spellbound Concerto, featuring Sean Chen on piano and Darryl on theremin. You won’t want to miss it!
Each Thursday evening at 6 pm, the ICO returns to YouTube and Facebook for a 20-minute program called “Mocktails and Masterpieces.” The programming will include video clips of ICO performances with background commentary for context. Some of the segments will be pre-recorded and some will be “live” events with ICO musicians and distinguished guest artists.
